1.1 Comparing and contrasting different organisational structure and culture
Organisational structure is very important for creating the framework for receiving the order and command of the activities of the various organisations like Mama Mia and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay can make a plan and control the various goal and objectives of the organisation. The structure highlights tasks, roles, responsibilities and communication process. In the UK, most of the restaurant has entrepreneurial, functional and geographical structures. The structure of Mama Mia has mainly followed the functional structure (Barlett, 2016, p.147). This is because this structure mainly focuses on grouping activities as per the convenience of specialization. Specialized skills are important to look after the various functional area of Mama Mia. In the case of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay follows the geographical structure. This is because the structure fully focuses on the location. Various types of services can be provided through geographical boundaries as per the demands of the customers. Mama Mia serves Italian foods and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay serves French cuisine.
1.2 Explaining the impact of the relationship between an organisational structure and culture on the performances of a business
According to Cavusgil et al. (2014, p.55) after the analysis the structure of Mama Mia it is quite clear that Mama Mia uses the functional structure for their restaurant. The main activities of the organisation occur due to the group efforts of the employees. Therefore, the main power is not in the hand of any individual, due to this fact for taking any decision Mama Mia can face various problems and may not come to the conclusions. Mama Mia must employ some professional management for the betterment of the restaurant. Mama Mia is serving Italian foods but the organisation is situated in the UK. Here has a big difference in a culture so they can employ some UK culture basis food for the customers so that their food limitations will be decreased. Mama Mia has a different culture but the customers of UK can get different cultural food in their own country, this may add extra value for the Mama Mia restaurant (Mellor et al. 2014, p.194).
1.3 Discussing the factors which influence individual behaviour at work
There are three types of factors can be influential for individual behaviour are stated as the individual group, the group, the organisation (Zingg et al. 2015, p.212). The individual is the main feature of the behaviour for any organisation. Incompatibility occurs when the need for the individual and the organisation, this may be the result of various conflict and frustration. Then the management of the organisation has to solve the problem and can unite both the individual and the organisation for providing the proper environment where the need of individual can be fulfilled and the needs of organisations can be satisfied. In this way, Mama Mia can solve their arising problems. Pettigrew (2013, p.47) stated that the group is another factor here individual need to work within a group and in this way one can inspire other and the pressure of the group can handle by the proper way. Mama Mia can include this factor for the betterment of their restaurant. The organisational structure and culture affect the individual behaviour of the organisation.
